I composed an entire minuet in just a few minutes. It is way better than my first minuet(I never even finished that one, it was so bad), but I still might need to make some changes, particularly to the B section. I used motives to both intensify the B section as it moves to F major and to de-intensify it as it moves back to Bb major. Overall, it is in rounded binary form, which is typical for minuets. What do you think of my minuet? Does it need any changes? If so, what changes? I tried to stay in the Baroque style, thus the melody and countermelody, but should I have an ending chord to both confirm that it is the ending and make the number of bars even? That would leave me with a bit of a coda to my minuet, which isn't typical.
I'd like some feedback on this minuet & trio I composed for piano. It's my first finished piece for piano (I don't play it), so I'm not sure if it's all playable and stuff. I tried to do this thing where the first theme is in A lydian and the second theme is in E mixolydian, so as to "swap key signatures", but I feel like I never really leave A. I appreciate any feedback 🙂
So after writing music for quite some time, I realized that I haven't formally tested out the Minuet and Trio form. Thus, I've decided to give it a go to see what would happen. Reviews would be nice! Hopefully it'll be part of a bigger work (such as a multiple movement string quartet). Format of composition: Theme - Trio I - Trio II - Coda
So, @danishali903 called for solo viola pieces. Here are my 2 cents. I really hope the double-stops in the second piece are not uncomfortable to play :D In fact, all those legatures of the second piece can be ignored and substituted by whatever you think is more idiomatic and executable.
